Arrival information for EXHIBITORS (those taking a car)

Postby 220 GSi turbo » Mon Nov 10, 2014 9:49 pm

Our allocated arrival time is 11.00 on Thursday.
If anybody can't make it for then, don't panic, it just means you may be kept waiting a while and have to dodge vans and trailers in the halls if you arrive later.

Head for 'VE door 17.4' (the NEC stewards will help you find it if you are not familiar with the layout of the site)

To confirm that the DVD/VCR combi unit is working OK. I need to find the remote for it, but I’ve had it working on the case buttons anyway. So I’ll be bringing this with me (c/w scart cable, coax cable & extension lead).

I’m working on the theory that someone else is bringing a TV screen.

On Thursday I just have to rock up at 11:00 (ish) and make my way to VE Door 17.4.

Do I need any sort of ticket/pass to deliver the car?

I’ll be able to purchase a Polo Shirt when I get there?

Any tickets or car park pass I need for Saturday & Sunday I can collect on Thursday?

Someone will tell me what times I am wanted on Saturday/Sunday?

What time are we likely to get away Thursday (approx – I need to get train back and arrange pick up from station).

Is there anything else I should bring with me on Thursday?

Cheers,

Duncan

Russ Swift; Montago and Rover Stunt & Team Driver Visiting the Show Saturday. :clapping

I have emailed the correspondence between Tanya Field who is organising the Montago Stand and myself regarding Russ to John Paul and Trevor. Apologies to those I haven't included, but I'm experiencing problem's sending email's. Mac won't recognise Rover.org address's for one. :headbanging

We have been asked if we would welcome Russ to our stand sometime during the afternoon 2-3pm ish and I have said yes.

He should have some interesting stories to tell us and may be bringing some Rover memorabilia with him :angel

Equipment Hire at the NEC.

I have been emailed by a company hiring amongst other things flat video screens, probably for a arm and a leg…………………...

I can bring a TV. An extension lead might be a good idea too....

'Course you can buy a polo shirt of the day - £15 to you :D

Expect to get away mid- to late afternoon as there'll be a fair amount of car cleaning and faffing with the stand stuff to do.

I don't think we need special tickets for the set up day - I hope not as I haven't got any either.... We'll be fine - see you there!

Oh, and bring some food each day unless you're rich :laughing

Thanks John,

I have just picked the tickets up from the Post Office. I hadn't realised the delivery they attempted on Monday contained them - I had been expecting something else recorded delivery.

I'll bring a dozen muffins tomorrow!

Cheers,

Everybody should have received their tickets (wristbands) by now. Carl, John, Jeremy and Duncan should also have the circular windscreen sticker to display on the car.

I have got car park tickets: we need to work out between ourselves on Thursday how to get the best use from the limited number we have. I will also have the spare wristbands in case anybody needs any extras.

Duncan: if you need to leave at a particular time to get the train home, that's no problem for the rest of us :wink3 I am glad to hear that your DVD unit can play video cassettes as well, because we have borrowed a Rover Group 'Product Insight' video. I was going to bring a VCR to play it on, but won't need to now :)

I will bring my 10 metre 4-way extension lead. It might be good to have a backup as well, though, if anybody else has one.

The stand is ready for business tomorrow :clapping

A lot of fiddling, faffing, pushing, pinning and polishing but we're there.

And Duncan's muffins are ace!

Excellent. I hope all goes really well. I've done enough of them to know how much hard work it is!
